Lee police arrest 2


Jonesville, Va. — According to Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons, two Tennessee men are behind bars on numerous drug-related charges.

According to the release, Deputy Chad Rouse was doing his normal patrol on Monday morning when he observed a maroon Honda Accord swerve across the line several times. Rouse made a traffic stop on the vehicle and upon speaking with the driver, Glenn Adam Hillard, 32, of Kingsport, Tenn., he noticed the driver’s speech was slurred and he had bloodshot eyes. Rouse conducted three field sobriety tests on Hillard — all of which he failed.

The release states Hillard told Rouse he had been smoking marijuana and methamphetamine earlier that day. Upon doing an inventory of the vehicle, Rouse and Lt. Todd Jones were able to place Hillard under arrest for driving under the influence of drugs, distributing a schedule I or II drug, two counts of possession of a schedule I or II drug, possession of marijuana, three counts of possession of a schedule III drug and possession of controlled paraphernalia.

Police said they also arrested the passenger of the vehicle, Vincent Ray Tester, 30, of Bristol, Tenn. Tester’s charges included two counts of distributing a schedule I or II drug, two counts of possession of a schedule III drug, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both men were given no bond, pending their arraignment on Wednesday.
